Players: 2-4

Number of Cards: Number cards from 1-12 (x4) / 4 Jokers. Also Required: 2 Dice.

Educational Value: Practices deconstructing the numbers 1-12.

Goal: The player with the fewest points at the end of the game is the winner.

Preparation: Each player is dealt a set of cards from 1-12 and a Joker and places the face-up in a row in front of them.

How to Play: The first player rolls the dice and adds the numbers they give together. He can then decide the combination of this sum that he wants to play with (e.g. in a total of 6, 5 + 1, 4 + 2, 3 + 2 + 1 can all be played).

When he has chosen how to make the sum, he turns over the appropriate cards (a Joker can be used as any number). This continues until all the cards are used up or he can no longer make the sum he needs to. When this happens, the value of the remaining cards is added and recorded.

The other players then take their turns, and the player with the fewest points at the end of the game is the winner.

Variation: Just use the numbers 1-10, and don’t use Jokers.
